Canada Goose Earnings Beat & # 39; Overshadowed & # 39;
The Toronto-based company is known for its $ 1,000 in parkas. It expanded to Beijing and Hong Kong last year to capitalize on the growing appetite of the affluent Chinese for luxury goods.
CEO Dani Reiss told analysts in a conference call that protests in Hong Kong impacted results and management also warned that wholesale sales in the third quarter, which accounted for most of its sales, would decline by mid-teens.
Canada Goose's expansion efforts weigh on results for fiscal year 2020. Profits in the first quarter of the fiscal year were impacted by more store openings in the off-season and higher spending to support growth, including in Greater China.
Baird analyst Jonathan Komp, who ranks the stock with a price target of 43 as neutral, announced the gains in the second quarter beat was "overshadowed by other factors". He noted that the gross margin was below consensus expectations due to the mix and lower wholesale performance.
"GOOS maintained the previous full-year outlook and key assumptions after the full-year forecasts for this report have increased over the last two years," he said in a November 13 research report. "We suspect that the report does not solve investors' current concerns about DTC's momentum, margin and inventory (growth up to + 61.5% year over year despite previous wholesale deliveries)."
CFRA analyst Camilla Yanushevsky attributed Wednesday's decline in order of importance to keep the company from raising bouts of strong bouts, a decline in gross margin, wholesale forecasts and Hong Kong.
However, it also expects a rebound and continues to rate the stock as a strong buy, lowering its price target by 5 to 65.
"GOOS 'shares tend to rise before the IPO in the past after the breakeven point has passed and the gross margin was missed falling after the profit and recovering in the days after. "She said to IBD. "Today's decline is no surprise to us and we are confident that the shares will recover."
